Q:

F11 error 11045976400 Kenmore Elite Residential washer

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
I am sorry to hear of the error you are having with the Kenmore Elite washer, I know how frustrating that is to have occur.
The F11 error code indicates a Serial Communication Error. Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.
Possible Causes/Procedures to check:
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check the wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Verify CCU operation by running any cycle.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing the MCU connectors.
The water inlet valve wouldn't have any bearing on this particular error/issue, even though it may need replacement if it's leaking. 
If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, you can call 1-800-349-5071, or click here to be directed to the page to set up service.

Q:

What new front loading washers can I purchase to stack in replacement of a 2005 HE3t Kenmore Elite front loader?

A:

I did some research for you but was not able to find what new dryer will stack with the washer. Your expert will be able to help answer your question. It may take two business days for your expert to reply. While you wait for your answer I have a link to the dryers Sears has. Please click here:[Sears.com Dryers]. I do hope that everything works out.

A:

That HE3t washer was manufactured for Kenmore by Whirlpool. There is not a current model that is specifically designed for stacking with that older HE3 dryer. Your only chance to find a compatible washer to stack that older dryer on would be the current Whirlpool Duet washer models. Here is an example of one current model that may work under that dryer: Whirlpool  4.1 cu. ft. Front-load Washer w/ Stainless Steel Basket – White. That new Whirlpool washer appears to use the same type of stacking kit that your original HE3t washer used. If you want to try it you can certainly give it a shot. I have to stop just short of guaranteeing that it will be compatible.

A:

If the display is going all blank and the control is "locked" up first try to unlock the control by using the Drain/Spin keypad. Next option would be to remove the top panel and check the ribbon connector for the console. Remove it and reinstall it and see if a better connection helps. Try this and let me know if it helps. From the description it sounds like a bad connection. A bad console or control would usually stay dead. I would check connections first and then we'll decide which part needs to be replaced.
